Default Nothing in my life makes sense anymore

Hi everyone,

It is my first time on here and I am writing this because I am really struggling.

Last year, I suffered a serious of bad panic attacks which left me unable to function for a couple of months. I had a lot of stress at the time and just hit breaking point when my dog died.

Now itís a year later and I feel like Iím left like this forever. Nothing feels real anymore to me. My life, my memories, my family and friends all seem alien to me. It is so terrifying, it feels as though I have lost my mind.

I look at pictures of myself and look in the mirror and I donít know who it is (like I know it is me but I donít feel the connection).

I canít go on like this, I just feel like Iím stuck here forever. What could this be? Have I gone crazy?

Please someone give me some feedback so I can try to get my head around this.

Thanks.

Hello PaigeTWoods: Thank you for bringing your concern here to PC. I see this is your first post here. So... welcome to Psych Central. One additional forum, here on PC, that may be of particular interest to you would be the coping with emotions forum. Here's a link:

https://forums.psychcentral.com/coping-with-emotions/

And then here are links to a selection of a dozen articles, from Psych Central's archives, on the subjects of panic attacks, depersonalization, & pet loss that (hopefully) may be of help:

Hello, have you been in Therapy? You said this is going on for a year, I believe going to see a psychiatrist and a therapist will help you to figure it all out. I know how you are feeling, panics attacks can get to bad that you feel like you area paralyze. Stuck in a place that you can't get out, but there are many treatments for us to get better. Hugs
